CHAIN - EU-IndiaGrid2 Workshop on Research Applications of High Speed Connectivity Across Europe, India and the Asia-Pacific Area
24 August 2011
Special community focus:
16:00 – 17:30 Specific contributions on HEP, Material Science and Climate Change applications exploiting NKN-TEIN3-GEANT e-Infrastructures
Chair: D. Sing, ERNET (India)
16-20 May 2011, Trieste (Italy)
With climate change high on the political agenda, the “Conference on the role of e-Infrastructures for Climate Change Research”, held in Trieste at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) 16-20 May 2011, addressed these aspects bringing together more than 130 among scientists, policy makers and international actors to address climate change from scientific, economic and political perspectives.
The event was co-organised by 3 EC-funded projects EU-India Grid2, EUMEDGRID-Support and CHAIN which are driving forward collaboration between regional e-nfrastructures; and the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN).
